Review: Cioccolata Churros Cafe

                             



I went to visit my cousin who just labor a baby cute boy and then i decided to have some light dinner before i go home. I found this cafe really nice.. If your looking for a really nice breakfast or a snack and even for a light dinner, this place is perfect. It Cioccolata Churros Cafe located in Intramuros. Every time i'm looking for a place to eat i always consider 4 category: 


1. Location

The place was accessible. It was located at bay leaf hotel in intramuros just one bus ride away from home about 10-15min travel so i can actually recommend it if your on a rush or if you go to school near it.


2. Food 

Since its cafe I'm expecting more on their coffee but what interest me are their tea specially the earl grey tea and berry sensation. It makes me excited to try all their tea selection. But this time i tried their nutty white chocolate and it was really good too, its not too sweet and it taste not the usual. I also try their chicken and egg sandwich and roasted almond honey glazed pretzels. The serving was ok and you can actually share it to your friends and the price as well is fine for their servings.


3. Ambiance

The place was cozy but i found it too small. i wonder how it looks during peak time hours but they also offer seats outside the shop. Since i went there almost closing time i feel comfortable with my own table. I can suggest maybe they could have some jazz sounds. Nevertheless it was pretty good. 


4. Staffs

The staffs were really nice and i think it was really good bonus coz you don't always find really nice staffs on other cafes. I went there to try their churros but it was already sold out and it really makes me sad so i ordered pretzels instead and the staff on the cashier is too nice to let me try their dipping for the churros to match my pretzels. I think hes the manager.. Hehe thanks manager for letting me try those dippings. It was perfect not because they are free but it actually taste good.



Over all i can recommend the place to everybody specially for those who love tea. And oh.. they offer 50% discount on muffins at 7pm until their closing. They closes at 8pm on sunday but I'm not sure during weekdays. So enjoy your visit!


For my verdict, 

CATEGORY:

1. Location - 20/20

2. Food- 30/30

3. Ambiance- 15/25

4. Staff- 25/25


TOTAL: 90/100

Flowers and Sunshine

It's nice to see the sun in the morning coz it actually gave you the strength to perform various acts and meet all your schedule without getting wet on the rain. Im so happy that i decided to wear this floral silk dress for a special event.



I got this cute dress on SM Girl Teen Wear section, i like it coz its silk and you dont actually need to iron it if you lay it out good on hanging. I hate ironing clothes it was maybe the laziest homeduty for me. I dont know why but i dont want to spend time doing it sweating and you cant even wash your hands after doing it kasi "mapapasma" ka daw, that's the term they use for that. The shoes it one of the favorite, it's old rose in color kinda pinkish and it doesnt have the killer heels so you can actually run and roam all over places, and it looks simple and elegant for me. I love pairing it on different styles. Well, i bought the bag on divisoria. You can buy a lot of stuffs on a way cheaper price just make sure you look for the quality as well coz having a great deal is by having the good quality on affordable prices. This bag looks really girly for me because of the colors but im glad it matches my dress. It also have slings which i remove because its teddy bears and it might not look good on the entire outfit. Add a sunglasses and your ready to go. 



I really love the floral prints on thies dress


Have a good day.

What if?



I was recently wondering a lot of things including what ive really wanting to do.. I mean there is a point in your life that you ask yourself "what if"... A point in your life that you wanted to turn back and redo everything you've done.. Or either do something different or maybe doing what you really wanted....


A Voice Lesson


I remember back then that i used to sing a lot..times that you have to buy a lot of cd videoke tapes to find your songs....you know the 90's stuffs, unlike nowadays the magic sing microphones are just a click away... Anyway, yes..i sing a lot until my brother and sister teased me that i dont have a good voice..ugh! But eventually as i grew up and gained a little confidence, i manage to enhance my singing and sing in front of other people including school programs back in highschool and some weddings of friends and relatives. So i've been wondering lately what if... What if i take those voice lessons back then? Maybe..just maybe i could have that confident to sing out loud in front of other people..haha oh well, i dont have that spectacular voice just a bearable one and bathroom is still where my big concierto happened...


Theather


I used to attend acting class when i was a child, times that you want to terminate those shyness. Im a shy kid and somehow im still right now.. I sign up in theatro when i was in highschool, it was fun and i had a lot of amazing memories. I gain friends and it leveled up my confidence but when i started college, my entire theather life ended.. I had a culture shock on my first term in college.. im not used to be with a lot of students coz i live in my little school back in highschool where there are a maximum of 3 sections per year... So what if i still audition even if im still in a middle of culture shock? What if i still pursue it regardless of heavy schedule? Maybe, just maybe im still developing and enhancing my skills and performing is still part of my life. However, i still wanted to perform and theather will always had a spot in my heart... Mag-artista kaya ako? Chos! Joke lang! 


Varsity


I always wanted to engaged myself into sports like volleyball, badminton, swimming and tennis but i guess im not the athletic type of person. I remember when i used to have those big bruises in my arms when i try to play volleyball...i think im not doing it right..hehe but after that i seldomly play that sport again. I guess its on the blood as well, no one in the family is an athlete or either no one really gets interested in sports. So what if i try harder and really engaged myself to sport? What if i get to play one of those? Maybe, just maybe ill be more fit and i get a really good stamina. Maybe i can influence my family to make it a really good form of bonding or maybe i can be a varsity back in college and get scholarship through it.. Oh I regret those times i didn't try harder.. I guess its late to be a varsity but its not too late to get a little sporty right? I can swim.. so i think i can take few lessons of swimming to make me a better swimmer.. Goal!


Im not saying that i dont like my life now.. I am happy and eventually taking another step to fullfil my dreams... It just that there are things that you wish you had done before..or maybe i had another dream that i've wanted to fullfil... Im a dreamer and im dreaming a lot of things. I know i can not do them all through out together, for now i have to focus myself for bigger responsibilities as i entered the real world of industry.. 


So if you are passionate to do something.. Do it now! Dont let your weakness and excuses stop you instead take it as a first step to be your strength, to become more happy and be a better individuals. It never too late there is still time fo everything, chances for everything, to explore and learn and be more positive.. Remember that success always starts with you! 


Have a good day readers and ill be glad to hear your stories as well.. 


Life is full of love,
xoxo
